I’m Taking A Personal Day

I’m taking a personal day.

Not from work, but here on my blog.  I know it’s a “HR blog”, but the longer I write and the more I come to learn about each of you who are kind enough to stop by and read and comment, the more I know I can share some personal thoughts too.

Today, I want to ask a favor of you.

I just read a post by my dear friend, Mark Stelzner.  Mark wrote a lovely tribute to his grandmother Rose on his blog.  More than anything, I want you to go read it today. I am reminded of the post I shared with you months ago about my own Grammy.  Her story and the story of Mark’s grandmother are very similar.

You just never know what people are going through.  We might be experiencing loss, having medical issues, having family or work issues.  My advice is to reach out to someone if you are going through something challenging.  You can draw so much strength from your friends- even your online friends.

So to Mark, I say thank you for sharing your story.  I send my love to you and Yasha.

And to you, I say you’re always welcome to share personal things with me.  Use the comments today to share your own story about a loved one or something that is challenging you right now that you might need help with.  You can also reach me via e-mail at trisham89@hotmail.com

Thank you for reading.
